    Default Large Ranged Weapons = Large Ammo ?

    As the title says:

    If a character wields a large sized ranged weapon (a large longbow, for example), do they require larger than normal ammunition?

    I'm almost thinking so, because of the increased damage dice.

    1d8 for a Longbow arrow
    2d6 for a Large longbow arrow

    Opinions?

    You are correct.

    A large arrow might also double as a short spear.
